Amaravati: The Andhra Pradesh government on Monday decided to extend the COVID curfew till June 10, with the same set of restrictions.
Chief Minister Y S Jagan Mohan Reddy took the decision to extend the curfew after a review of the current COVID-19 scenario in the state, official sources said.
The curfew, which was first clamped from May 5 as the coronavirus cases were on a steep upward spiral, was supposed to end on May 31.
Though the COVID-19 cases have been witnessing a steady decline over the past week, the government decided to continue the curfew for a few more days to ensure the COVID-19 curve flattens, the sources said.
“The curfew will be in force daily from 1 2 noon to 6 am.
